Is Windchill ProjectLink really a project and resource mgt tool, or more of a data sharing sandbox

We are weighing software options for advancing our management of product development projects.  We're evaluating tools in our ERP system (Infor Syteline), a custom tool and possibly Windchill ProjectLink, as we use PDMLink for managing project related information (primarily CAD).  A couple of  resources have told me ProjectLink really isn't a tool that allows you to manage resources, predict and track project timing, integrate cleanly with tools such as MS Project (contrary to PTC's literature) etc. - that it was more of a way to more easily share information, including CAD data, in a less controlled "sandbox" format as product is in early development  / "what -ifed" versus later pre-production or released to production phases of its lifecycle which might be more tightly controlled in PDMLink.  Is this accurate?  Any experience based advice / words of wisdom / opinions on the capabilities and proper application of ProjectLink?

Regards,

Erik Gifford

This is an old topic, however, if you would still like some input please let me know.
